Description

Join Dallas SWE for our April Professional Development Event - Strategies for True Inclusion: The World is in Your Workplace

Date: Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Time: 5:30-7:30 PM

Location: Olive Garden, 4240 Belt Line Road, Addison, TX 75001

Topic: The engineering workforce demographic of race, national origin and cultural identity differs considerably from the US population at large. Cultural heritage influences relationships, communication, expectations. The goal of this talk is to explore concepts proposed by Hoffstede. A comparison of different reference frames will be used together with case studies.


Speaker: Nandika D’Souza immigrated to the US 30 years ago from India. She did her Masters at Auburn and her doctorate at Texas A&M University. She is currently a professor of Mechanical and Energy Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas. She was the recipient of the 2015 Distinguished Engineering Educator award from SWE and is a life member of SWE, NSBE and Girl Scouts.


This meeting is open to all (men and women, SWE members and non-members alike), and children are also welcome (use your discretion, child care is not provided). Food will be available for purchase by the individual.
